ÉTS, McGill and HEC Montréal are drawing upon the expertise of three professors who specialize in creativity and innovation management, along with doctoral students, to develop the Montreal Creativity Hub. Offering a real window on the creative process, the Hub will serve to organize meetings and training sessions for professionals and companies around the process of idea-generation and innovation. For instance, universities will be invited to take up challenges around applied research projects. Professors will lead creative workshops to familiarize companies with the concept of idea management. Citizens, organizations and companies will also benefit from access to creative professionals to stimulate the development and application of innovative ideas. This approach will also be used in the university environment to study the initial stages in the creative process in greater depth and measure their impact on concrete projects. Activities will be transferred to the Dow Planetarium once the ÉTS has completed the conversion.
